  • Located within the Van Hage garden centre this miniature railway offers children and grown-ups a fun experience away from the main shopping areas. For the £1.00 per head entrance fee you get to ride on either a steam locomotive or diesel train. Two loops of the layout take you around a small park populated by ornamental forest animals. For tall passengers there is a tunnel to negotiate on the first lap so remember to duck! Manned by a team of enthusiastic volunteers everything runs like clockwork. Highly recommended.
  • Quite fun for the kids and cheap, too. Clearly, it's a labour of love for the volunteers who run this mini railway.
  • Taken our little boy here so many times and he never tires of it! A nice morning or afternoon out! It's great they keep it running even in winter, a godsend when so much else is closed and you want to take them out for a little while.
  • Great value at only £1 per ride. Often real steam engines. Occasional themed weekends e.g. London Underground. My children love it.
  • Great fun for all the family
